challenges and difficulties
Ferrera both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable to others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting them get to know her intimately does not come easily to America, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. America Ferrera is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Ferrera.
Her childhood or her relationship with her parents was restrictive, unloving or unhappy in ways that may prevent America from allowing other people to get close to her in later life. America Ferrera feels that she was deprived in one form or another, regardless of whether she actually was or not. Her early life - at least as Ferrera remembers it - may have been marked by emotional separation or repression of her needs and feelings. Forgiving her parents and/or letting go of any resentments she has about the limitations that she experienced early in her life is crucial. Also, America Ferrera needs to build her own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into her home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help America accomplish this task.

The direction America Ferrera needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
America Ferrera needs to take what she has learned (either through formal education or her own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either America's quality of life or that of persons in her world, is of little real value. Putting Ferrera's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in her daily relationships, and in the multiple choices she makes every day, will enable America Ferrera to really test her belief system and discover more about life.
